Persistent vulvitis: There are other possible causes for your symptoms that a PAP and cervical biopsy may not detect. If you have had Herpes infection in the vulva/genital area, it an cause the burning sensation - sometimes even without a rash. Treatment with oral medication is available. The white spots could be yeast (or Candida), easily treated. An office collection of these spots could confirm for treatment
